I can't believe he's already One Year Old….....but then again it's been a long year! Jackson is already so much bigger as a one-year-old than I thought; for some reason I thought I'd have a little baby for so much longer?? In the last month he has developed SO much faster than any other month with words, walking & communication. In our 11 month post I mentioned he was scaling the furniture only weeks after beginning to crawl on all fours- literally just TWO weeks later this guy was officially on the move at 11.5 months!! : ) Although I loved the little infant I could easily carry around with me anywhere, I'm so happy to embark on my favorite age! This weekend is his big 1st birthday at the river in his favorite fruit theme: Oranges of course. We've been running around like crazy finalizing the menu and all the details, I really hope he likes his huge confetti balloons and teepee we got for him : )
Age: 12 Months
